10 Anime Characters Who Can Dodge Bullets

Anime characters have been known to perform some incredible feats. Even with all their supernatural strengths, however, there are still limitations to most characters’ powers. While unparalleled speed and agility are common skills that many anime protagonists tend to have, it’s not every day that fans get to see characters carry out something as amazing as dodging an actual bullet.

On average, bullets tend to fly at around double the speed of sound. In order to dodge a bullet, an anime hero will have to have unbelievably fast reflexes, superhuman senses that can allow them to see a bullet’s trajectory, and finally the sheer speed to get out of the way before it hits them. While many anime characters may have one or two of these abilities, only a few have the combination of skills necessary to entirely dodge a bullet.

Not only is Hit unbelievably fast on his own, but his Time Skip ability allows him to essentially freeze time for those around him. Combining both his physical speed and reflexes along with Time Skip, there’s no way something as slow as a bullet could touch him.
